Bermuda Seed Un-hulled #11602

Bermuda Seed Un-hulled #11602

Unhulled is a term meaning that the protective plant seed hull is in tact. Often believed that hull removal will improve the time it takes for germination, but with bermuda seed studies indicate that there is actually little to no differance. However, there are a few less actual seed per pound when purchasing unhulled seed vs hulled which has had the plant seed hull removed. 

Makes a good growth crop in sandy soils, but will not grow in shaded areas or groves. Dormant in winter, but recovers quickly in warm weather. A dependable, permanent grass for lawns, golf courses and athletic fields.

Planting Date: May to August

Planting Rate: 1/4 lbs per 1000 sq/ft for small area.

Broadcast Rate: 15 to 20 lbs per acre.

Drill Rate: 15 to 20 lbs per acre

Coverage Depth: 1/8" to 1/4" maximum

Days to maturity: Times may vary greatly, but cutting or grazing should be delayed until grass is 6" to 8" tall.

Method:
Plant when soil moisture is adequate. For spring planting, delay seeding until soil temperatures average 65 degrees or higher at a 4 inch depth. For summer plantings, do not plant when ambient temperatures are expected to be above the middle 90?s. If weeds become problematic, mow the field  periodically to reduce competition with the developing bermuda seedlings. To further reduce competition from weeds and grasses, delay the application of fertilizers containing nitrogen until the bermuda seedlings have fully emerged. 
For Clean-tilled Ground - Broadcast
  Prepare the ground well in advance. This allows the first flush of crabgrass and other weed competition to germinate and be killed by an application of a non-residual and non-selective herbicide like glyphosate before planting Tierra Verde.
  Clean-till the area with a disc, then level and smooth the area. Use a culti-packer to prepare a firm seedbed before planting. Several passes may be necessary to achieve proper firmness.
  Broadcast the seed and culti-pack once more to get good seed to soil contact. Bermudagrass
seed will not germinate in a fluffy, loose seedbed
